With a Little Help

Blythe a Day on Flickr
Theme: With a Little Help from my Friends

Gidget loves to wear cute boots with her dresses, but she can never get them off without a little help from a friend.

Curly Blue Babe and Cherry Beach Sunset

I was super excited to find these cherry boots on eBay recently! I've been looking for the boots or the "Knees and Toes Sweet" set, which includes the boots, for ages. This was listed as "blythe cute shoes boots original takara shoe set". NO mention of cherries--no wonder I couldn't find it!

Slow Down!

Blythe a Day on Flickr
Theme: Slow Down

Marina's plan for a pet-sitting business looked great on paper, but it was a lot harder than than she expected it to be when she put it into action.

Playful Raindrops is walking an strange assortment of animals that came with Littlest Pet Shop Blythe dolls. That octopus in the lead is killing me!

This is her stock dress and hairband. The hairband was impossible to put on her without making her hair look weird, so I sewed the band part of it to the under side of the bow, and sewed on a hairclip. Much better!

Playful Raindrops

Blythe a Day on Flickr
Theme: Rain

Look who arrived just in time for today's theme: Playful Raindrops! I ordered her a couple of months ago, when she was still in "sketch" form. Her clothes are really cute--the raincoat is a completely new item in my dolls' collective wardrobe, and her dress is a cute too (I'll have to show you that another time). The boots fit very tightly;  the right one in particular was hard to get all the way on, and she isn't wearing socks or stockings, so these might get passed down to one of her Middie sisters.

She has the shortest hair of any of my dolls. You can't see it here with the hood on, but it is a rather modern haircut: slightly shorter in back and longer in the front. I don't know if that was intentional or not, but it is cute! I'm surprised it's perfectly straight, though, because in her "official" photos the ends are curled up. The color is exactly the same as Cousin Olivia and Ice Rune.

Every new dolly needs a name, and I've decided to continue the watery theme and call her Marina.

The two of us are alike in every way except one: she likes vanilla, and I like strawberry!

Blythe a Day on Flickr
Theme: Blackbird

"I found this pretty egg on the ground. I wonder, where is the mama bird?"

This Blythe doll is Charlotte des Fleurs--isn't she gorgeous??

The egg is really a robin's egg; I found it on the ground recently when I went for a walk. There is a hole on the other side and it was empty except for the yolk. I brought it home and washed it out, and I will add it to my bird nest/feather/egg shell collection.

The blackbird is a piece of statuary that my husband gave me, because he knows I love animals. It's pretty cool!

Theme: Carry that Weight

"Whew! This basket is getting heavier by the minute! I think we should stop right here--this looks like a good spot for our picnic."

Middie Nellie Nibbles, and Neo Raspberry Sorbet Blythe dolls. The Neo, Bonnie, is wearing the stock outfit from Country Summer. I almost bought that doll, but then I realized that she is very much like Bonnie, and it was just her outfit I loved--so I bought the outfit for Bonnie.

Penelope has an irrational fear of even the gentlest-looking dogs.

This is exactly how my daughter reacted to dogs...and bees...when she was younger. She still reacts this way to bees.

Your Mother Should Know

Your Mother Should Know

Stepping outside, Jane saw a shocking sight. "BOYS! I think your mother should know that you are running around without your pants on! I'm going to call her right now!"

The Sonny Angels just laughed and ran away. Jane never thought angels could be so naughty.

This shocked-looking Blythe is Jane, my Kenner.

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Cinco de Mayo commemorates the triumph of the Mexican army over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. 
Just in case you wanted to know.

Okay, so, yes...this picture is very similar to the one I did last year for Cinco de Mayo. The same doll (Milky Way Sugar), wearing the same dress, in front of the same background. The guitar is a better prop than the felt taco she was holding last year, so that's an improvement! I was really out of ideas for this. Here's last year's photo, below.

May the Fourth

May the Fourth Be With You

You wouldn't guess it to look at them, but these girls are huge Star Wars fans. They have a massive collection of action figures that they use to create scenes that were never actually in any of the movies.

May the Fourth be with you, from Jubilee and Tillie!

They are Simply Thumpty Thump and Simply Bubble Boom Blythe dolls, and Boba Fett and Darth Maul Star Wars figures (from my husband's collection.)
